LOS ANGELES, July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DigiPath, Inc. (OTCQB: DIGP / "DigiPath"), a digital laboratory provider within the human, animal, and cannabis testing markets, announces the launch of The National Marijuana News ("TNMNews"). The balanced cannabis news site and talk radio show focus on the political, economic, medicinal, and cultural dimensions of the rapidly evolving--and profoundly controversial--medicinal and recreational marijuana industry.
"No plant has sparked more debate than the cannabis plant," said Todd Denkin, President of DigiPath, Inc. "The industry and public demand objective data, and we are delivering through reliable third-party cannabis efficacy and safety testing, marijuana education and training, and now balanced media coverage."
The weekly TNMNews radio program began airing each Wednesday at 12 p.m. Pacific Time on Live365 and Blog Talk Radio in June, 2014, following its soft launch. DigiPath intends to roll out the program to terrestrial radio stations in twenty major US markets over the next twelve months.
"The response has been overwhelming," said TNMNews host Bruce Kelly, who has created and developed a number of radio platforms, including XM Radio. "We picked up 15,000 Facebook likes and logged hundreds of listening hours in the first two weeks. We're making it real, and people are tuning in."
Executive producer Martin Wagmaister, the driving force behind the project, says the main goal of TNMNews is to educate the public about the politics, economics, and social aspects of cannabis and the marijuana industry from diverse, and often dissenting, perspectives.
"One way we ensure our news coverage is balanced and unbiased is by maintaining strict separation of editorial decision-making from all corporate and sales influences, similar to how ABC, CBS, or NBC manages their news divisions," said Wagmaister.
Wagmaister has produced Rick Dees In the Morning, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and The Coca Cola Open Happiness Mix Show with Radio Express Inc.
This week TNMNews announced that radio legend Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling has just signed on as TNMNews' East Coast correspondent. Jackie began his broadcasting career on the Rick Dees morning show (KIIS FM in Los Angeles) in 1981 and went on to become the head writer and sidekick to legendary radio personality Howard Stern from 1983 to 2001. He now hosts Jackie's Joke Hunt on SiriusXM.
We expect TNMNews' upcoming radio show guest lineup to include the following:
Board Member for the National Cannabis Industry Association
Owner of the Buds and Roses Collective
Filmmaker and Co-founder of Medical Marijuana 411.Com
Karen O' Keefe
Director of State Policies at the Marijuana Policy Project
